The University of Wisconsin Department of Emergency Medicine sponsors several emergency medicine fellowships and postgraduate training opportunities designed to help emergency physicians further their careers. From community medical directors to residency program leaders, professional team physicians to institutional directors of disaster medicine, graduates of our fellowship and postgraduate training programs are advancing patient care, medical education, and healthcare policy across the globe.
The field of emergency medicine is growing more competitive as it increases in popularity and diversity, and the benefit of establishing a niche is increasingly apparent. DEM offers renowned 3+1 training opportunities for current residents of our program, in addition to sponsoring a number of accredited fellowships under the direction of experienced, nationally recognized faculty.
We take pride in preparing fellows for successful and fulfilling careers, and we hope you’ll explore these pages to learn more about what we can offer you.
